aXe Hackathon

Marcy Sutton and Wilco Fiers will be hosting our 2nd annual aXe Hackathon as part of CSUN 2017. This year, we’ll be using aXe to perform accessibility testing on open source component libraries, WordPress templates, and who knows what else, and we’ll log those issues with the content owners. Details on a more advanced project will be coming soon…

Who?

Anyone! Everyone! All experience levels. Seasoned developers and people who wouldn’t know an anchor tag if it punched them in the blogspot. If you can download a browser extension, you can test for accessibility. And if you’d like something more challenging, don’t worry – we’ll have you covered.

Where?

The Manchester Grand Hyatt, Room: Solana Beach AB
1 Market Place, San Diego, CA 92101

When?

Saturday, March 4th, 2017. 9am-12pm.

Why?

Because people with disabilities deserve equal access to the internet, and it takes a village to make this kind of change. Plus, you’ll come away with some valuable skills, like…

  • How to perform basic accessibility testing
  • How to put together an accessibility bug report that is easy to understand and easy to act on
  • How to log issues on GitHub

Did I mention the cool advanced project? Don’t worry – we’ll have more details soon.

And yes, there will be free snacks and prizes. You won’t want to miss it!
